Proudly, the Class of 1947 dedicates this first issue of 
The Bay Path yearbook to 



G. C 


President of the Bay Path Secretarial School, to whom we 
owe so much. 

It is fitting that the yearbook, published by the first class 
at the new Bay Path, be dedicated to this man of vision who 
is chiefly responsible for our new school in Longmeadow. 

We salute him with heartfelt thanks and wish him continued 
success and contentment in his work. 


We, the Class of 1947, express to 

Dr. Thomas J. Wagner, Dean 

our deep thanks for the kindness and counsel you have given 
to us in our two years at Bay Path.

Mary is noted for her excellent 
taste in clothes. Her beauty en- 
hances all males. She is always 
getting into scrapes, but usually 
manages to get out of them with 
no ill effects. Her big disappoint- 
ment in life was when the "Donkey

doughnuts. Her favorite topic is 
West Point.

Selma could always be depended 
on to cheer us up on our "off days" 
with a friendly greeting and a 
broad smile. She surprised us all 
at our Halloween Dance by cooking 
up an excellent tap dance number

feet — but you should see her beat 
out a rhythm on a "cal" machine.

"Jocie" may well be remembered 
for the many invitations she re- 
ceived from various men's colleges 
which were always topics of con-

"Charl" is our beauty from Maine. 
She is friendly and loyal to every- 
one. With her black hair, bright 
shining eyes, and her radiant smile, 
she is an outstanding asset to the 
class. She can always be relied 
upon to help anyone out and lend 
a willing hand at all social events. 




"Shirl" is noted for her spontaneous 
wit and good humor. Although she 
came to Bay Path five months later 
than the rest of us, it was only a 
matter of a few weeks before she 
became "one of the girls." Her 
sparkling personality and friendly 
manner will always be remembered 
by us all.

"Nance" is well known around the 

campus as being the Dean's favorite 

student. Her favorite pastime is 

meeting trains, but the thing she 

does best is coming late to class. 

Really "Nance" is a swell girl and 

full of fun. She is the class whiz 

in shorthand and bowling. 









Mildred has poise and the correct 
attitude that it takes to be a perfect 
secretary. Her fine selection of 
clothes is topped off by her famous 
sack dress. She has many interest- 
ing tales lo tell of her experiences 
in the service. To add it all up, she 
is the type of girl you would want 
for your best chum.

Ines is known for her outstanding 
abilities in shorthand and typing. 
She is head of the special delivery 
service between "Friendly's" and

her antics at the dorm, but we can 
always use our imagination.

class history 

It was on September 5, 1945, that the Class of '47 entered Bay Path. 
The school now had a new location — Longmeadow. Becoming acquainted 
with our new surroundings and our new friends didn't take too long. 
Seniors and Juniors were quickly "one" as the result of a picnic which was 
given to us during the first week of school. 

The first social event of the season was the President's Tea. It was a 
great success and we remember the friendly atmosphere that prevailed. 
Following this, Hallowe'en gave the occasion for a dance on October 26. 
A gay time was had by all amid corn husks and roasted hot dogs. 

Our class officers were elected for the year, and they served us well. 
Several class members were elected to serve on the Student Council. Those 
elected were: Dorothy Cobbs, Treasurer; Claire Leger, Nancy Wheeler, 
Gwendolyn Hutchinson, Catherine Smith. 

The Christmas Formal Dance took place on December 14. The whole 
affair was very beautiful and still to be remembered. Deepwood Hall 
took on a festive adornment. Our vacation, which was scheduled to start 
on December 22, actually started on the 20th as Mr. Carr announced an 
early vacation because of a snowstorm. This did not sadden us in the 
least as we were all delighted at the prospect of a few more days with our 

On January 2, we returned to school with many memories of our two 
weeks at home. Santa had been good to us and that little fellow who comes 
around at the first of the year had resolved us to high resolutions. Determi- 
nation to get all A's started with the beginning of the new semester on 
February 24. 

On March 18th, the medical students started their supplementary 
training at Wesson Hospital. Each Monday was spent learning the intri- 
cacies of the hospital system, complete with watching autopsies, the wit- 
nessing of which turned many a stomach toward a new career. 

The senior class of 1946 honored us with a tea on March 26. The guests 
of honor were: Miss Marion Kilner, Mrs. Christina Wright, and Mrs. Jerris 
McCarty of the Classes of 1898, 1907, and 1900 respectively. 

Weeks went by quickly — it seemed no time at all after our Easter 
vacation that we were enjoying the pleasures of our Junior Prom on May 3. 

In early June, we elected our current class officers. They started their 
term of office in the fall and served us faithfully all year. They were: 
President, Shirley Cobbs; Vice-President, Charlotte Trafton; Secretary, Ada 
Spahl; Treasurer, Theresa Joe. 

Graduation Week was soon upon us. It was good for the Seniors, but 
we as Juniors had pleasure in the thought of coming back another year. 
Our beautiful outdoor swimming pool and its surroundings provided the 
scenic spot for a picnic on June 27. Evening came and we had our Gradu- 
ation Dance. Seniors showed signs of becoming a little dewy-eyed with 
the thought of leaving the scene of the past two years of activity. The next 

day, the Queen and her court prevailed over Class Day. Queen of the 
Court was Claire Forcier, and her attendants were: Shirley Cobbs, 
Gwendolyn Hutchinson, Nancy Wheeler, Mary Joyce, Theresa Joe, Ruth 
Howard, Jean Picknally, Marian Aratti, Marion Walker, Julia Mokrycki, 
Helen Suchocki, and Gretchen Smith. 

Graduation exercises were on June 29. The seniors listened to very 
inspiring talks by both our President, Mr. Thomas Carr, and Reverend 
Dwight Cart. The day was over and we bid the seniors fond farewell, and 
took ourselves off for our various homes, where we looked forward to a 
summer of sun, swimming, and loafing — except for the poor unfortunates 
who felt ambitious enough to find themselves jobs. 

In September of this year we returned to welcome the new students 
just as we were welcomed a year ago. The first social get-together of the 
year was held in picnic style. A cool fall breeze did not prevent many 
of us from making use of our swimming pool. 

More activities were started this year, among them a bowling team, 
dramatic club, and a few of the girls met to play softball, while others of 
the more domestic type enjoyed their "Sewing Bee." 

Elected by the class for President of our Student Council was Gwen 
Hutchinson. To help her were Mary Lagana, Vice-President; Rosalie Kos- 
towski, Secretary-Treasurer; and Claire Leger, Dorothy Cobbs, Mary Lou 
Shea, Ruth Howard, Shirley Brown, Alice Healey, and Ramona Ingraham. 

A surprise Christmas party was given us by the Faculty and Staff 
before we left for our Christmas vacation. After the dinner we went down- 
stairs for another surprise — Santa Claus, with presents for everyone. Just 
as we were about to leave for the day Mr. Carr announced that school was 
officially closed for vacation. 

Upon our return on January 6, we had the thought of exams to look 
forward to. Lights burned late for a week or two, and how true the old 
saying, "What hath night to do with sleep." 

The Springfield College-Bay Path "Mixers" were quite successful, be- 
cause we often hear the girls say "he's" from Springfield College. They 
were quite in evidence at the Mid-Winter Formal on February. 7. This was 
the first formal given this year, and it really was a success — the Sheraton 
atmosphere helped a lot. 

As March arrived and while our Daddys thought of Income Taxes, we 
had thoughts of electing our Queen for Class Day. We can always stand 
by our judgment of electing Shirley Cobbs to be our beautiful Queen to 
rule over her Court on Class Day. 

Easter and its parade of spring styles brought many of the girls back 
from vacation with some really stunning creations. The executive students 
made their trip to New York while the Medical Secretaries went to work 
for two weeks of practice in local doctors' offices. 

Bay Path has been good to us. It will ever remain in our memoirs to 
carry with us through the years ahead and to the future alumni meetings 
when we get back together. 

class prophecy 

JYlany people have often wished that they were born with a silver 
spoon in their mouths. By this we mean their future has been planned out 
for them, so we have decided to relieve your worried minds by predicting 
the future of our present -graduating class. 

The war is now over and people, as well as industry, are beginning 
to come back to normal. We, the members of the senior class, are now 
beginning on a new adventure. What may happen or what we may do 
in the next decade is a complete mystery to each and every one of us. We 
have predicted that the majority of the class will remain unattached young 

Shall we now delve into that grand and glorious future? The Class 
of 1947 in the year 1957 is now a much older, wiser, and matured group 
of young women. Letters were sent out to the alumnae of this class stating 
that there is to be a reunion on the twenty-first of June, 1957. 

The beginning of such a reunion is focused at the airport in Hartford, 
Connecticut, at twelve o'clock noon. At the door of a huge transcontinental 
airliner we see Jocelyn Stedman. Jocelyn is the airline stewardess on 
this plane. She seems to be thriving while "flying through the air with the 
greatest of ease." There are many passengers on board this plane, one of 
■whom we recognize immediately as Gwendolyn Hutchinson. Gwen, a 
Certified Public Accountant, has come up here from Palm Beach, Florida. 
Gwen and Jocelyn are leaving Hartford for Springfield on the next train. 
At one o'clock in the afternoon, they are seen boarding a train which has 
come in from Chicago bound for Boston. Upon entering, they are greeted 
by Mary Lagana, who is now a traveling auditor for Pierce, Brook, and 
Lincoln, interstate wholesale dealers of fresh oranges. 

Upon arriving at the Springfield station, everything seems to be just 
as it was ten years ago. Well, hello there! Dorothy Cobbs, who is now 
married and has two lovely children, is sitting at one of the benches ap- 
parently waiting for someone. As we look around, we notice a tall, stately 
woman approaching — Charlotte Trafton. We hardly recognize her, al- 
though she has not changed much. The reunion is off to a marvelous 
start. Soon they are all hurrying to catch a bus for the Hotel Kimball, 
where they all have reservations for two days. 

We recognize Ruth Garwood and Shirley Cobbs standing at the recep- 
tion desk, just registering, when they see their former classmates enter 
through the main door. Ruth and Shirley never ventured outside Spring- 
field for their life work. They are secretaries to very prominent busi- 

Now we spy Mary Joyce, Claire Leger. Miriam Lyons, and Shirley 
Castonguay talking over old times, never-to-be-forgotten days at Bay Path. 
Each of these girls is a medical secretary to a fine doctor. Miriam, of 
course, still has her well-remembered sense of humor. 

l" I 

And now, who is this stepping out of the elevator? Why, it is Lillian 
Parzych, followed by Hester Taylor and Muriel Antaya. Lillian has 
certainly gone a long way from Bay Path in Longmeadow. She is now 
employed by the New York Stock Exchange. Hester and Muriel work with 
her and are her constant companions. 

Do we hear "cases" mentioned over there? Four very engrossed young 
ladies, Rosalie Kostowski, Ruth Howard, Shirley Siebert, and Helen Cass, 
are relating their many unusual experiences and case histories. Rosalie is 
secretary to the top brain specialist in the United States. Ruth is secretary 
to the famous pediatrician. Dr. J. A. Owen of San Francisco. Shirley and 
Helen both seem to have accomplished a great deal since their Bay Path 
Days. Shirley can now eat regular meals like everyone else — no more 
toast and sugar with black coffee. 

Jean Picknally and Ada Spahl have just sauntered in from the dining 
room after having their mid-afternoon snack. Jean, now an aviatrix and 
owning a jet-propelled plane of her own, flew Ada into town from New 
York City. Ada is the top court stenographer in the New York Supreme 

The Veterans Administration is still in action and functioning very 
efficiently. And why not? We see Mildred Wilson as private secretary to 
the head of this organization, and Alva Raymond as secretary to Dr. A. 
T. Johnson, chief doctor of all examinations. 

It is still afternoon and the stores are not yet closed, and a tour of the 
stores would be most delightful. There are a few minor changes, but really 
nothing to speak of. But wait! That shop over there — Diana's Specialty 
Shop — shall we explore it? In the door, and upon investigating, we find 
that Theresa Joe is managing the store. While talking to Theresa, we find 
that Selma Koch is the accountant of this exclusive little shop. While dis- 
cussing old times with Theresa and Selma, who should walk in but Ines 
Zanone and Catherine Smith, doing a little shopping before going to the 
Kimball. Both of these girls are happily married, and still inseparable. 

Back at the Hotel Kimball, Nancy Wheeler, married for several years 
now, has just arrived after driving up from New Jersey. Ann Jaremko 
comes in just behind her, making the class complete. Ann is now owner 
of a beautiful little tea room, and doing very well at the job. 

We are all together now and ready for a grand reunion — our very 
first in ten years. The vision into the future fades, so we are spared the 
agony of enduring the gossip that is sure to be running wild during the 
two days of this all-too-brief reunion.
